Fires from Alaska to California continue to rage today, with a new blaze near Yosemite National Park in California causing concern. 

So far, this most recent fire has burned 16,000 acres in the area and nearly 1,000 firefighters remain on the scene trying to combat the blaze. Currently, there is only a five percent containment, but officials say no homes sit in harm's way at this hour.

Yet, with Highway 120 - one of the main accesses into and out of Yosemite - being closed in parts, responders have elements working against their favor. 

Estimates sit at more than $1B being spent so far to fight fires in the 2013 season, and there are still several months to go before it comes to a close.

More fires - five to be exact - continue to burn inside Yellowstone National Park, as well.
